“Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law, LLP (“Scott+Scott”), announces that it has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a putative class of financial institutions that suffered damages as a result of the recently-announced data breach at nationwide locations of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (“Arby’s”).
In or around October 2016, computer hackers began using malicious software, known as malware, to access point-of-sale systems at Arby’s locations throughout the United States. This data breach lasted through at least January 2017 (and possibly later) when Arby’s first learned of the data breach only after being notified of the breach by industry partners. Arby’s did not publicly acknowledge the breach until February 16, 2017, approximately four months after hackers first gained entry into Arby’s data systems.”
